Pakistan and China have recently signed an agreement for the launch of a special satellite “Pakistan Remote Sensing Satellite (PRSS-1) System” in June 2018 to monitor the development of the $46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects. The CPEC project has launched with the help of China to connect western China to southern Pakistan’s port city of Gawadar that gives China an opening to the Arabian Sea. India has been protesting the corridor’s passing through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir ever since the project was started by President Xi Jinping during his visit to Islamabad 2015.
